One global nation would be equivalent to opening up your home to the entire block, creating hallways between the homes, and sharing your bank account
and significant others. Each neighbor already has vastly different backgrounds and histories. Each neighbor is molded by their environment and
experiences. Each neighbor is competing for resources with YOU. Your neighbors compete with you for your job, for your money, in the dating world
and in maintaining your current relationship. Your neighbors' best interests are not your best interests. But why not make all neighbors one
One global nation would be the same as all companies giving up their firewalls and making their internal networks the open Internet. Competing
companies would have access to proprietary information of the competition, and be able to disable the operations of their competitors. But why not
make all companies one company?
One global nation would be the same as abolishing individual states. Your state would be subject to the resource demands of the next region for
lumber, water, tax revenue, jobs, companies, and hugely expensive social support programs. California could quickly bankrupt neighboring states by
sharing it's budget, or by shifting resource draining portions of the population to neighboring states. And impose it's restrictive laws on
business or people who used to be outside it's borders, or tried to move away from it's constricting laws.
There's the constitution. One nation believes in alienable rights granted by God, which cannot be infringed by man. Say another nation is based on
atheism, there's no God so therefore the only rights that exist are permitted by government, and we're simply animals anyway so human life has
little difference in value from a cow. Another nation is controlled by an extremist religion where no skin can be exposed under punishment of death
by stoning. Say another nation has low food resources, and it's open season on your pets. Those are conflicts in principles. But why not make all
nations one global nation?
The idea fails at the idea stage.
